Of course, by now you know that fellow Mindanaoan Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao captured his 8th title – World Light Middleweight – and has undoubtedly carved his name in boxing history. The Pacquiao versus Margarito fight last November 13, 2010 at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium was indeed one exciting fight, yes? Antonio Margarito, who reportedly had to undergo facial surgery after the boxing championship bout, displayed courage, will and sheer determination and I bet all Filipinos appreciated that. Sarangani, Mindanao‘s very own congressman, Manny Pacquiao, on the other hand, displayed nothing but enviable, world-class boxing skills.
Congratulations, Congressman Manny Pacquiao! I’m super proud of you! Thank you for uplifting the Filipino name and spirit once again! Congratulations to coach Freddie Roach, Buboy Fernandez and the rest of Team Pacquiao as well!
And now for those of you who, by some reason, missed the Pacquiao vs Margarito fight, here are replay videos of the Pacquiao-Margarito championship bout. Enjoy!
